Looking pretty good. Role players who have underwhelmed are all looking good.
Just a glimpse of what we'd have seen in the playoffs with RR b/c they were clearly treading water and not trying once they got Avery back and won some big games. A 1-8 matchup with Miami would have been perfect.
Now I am not sure how we'll fare once the games matter since Rondo's loss will hurt badly then.
Nothing to do with the current team but bad news for a former Celtics great:
Basketball Hall of Famer Larry Bird’s college-age son could be in a world of trouble if a nasty batch of allegations about the 21-year-old are true. According to police in Bloomington, Ind., Connor Bird allegedly attempted to run his ex-girlfriend over with a car on Sunday after she got out off his vehicle following several arguments.
For Bird, the list of allegations goes on — the Indianapolis Star is reporting that Bird’s list of charges will include “battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.” So, allegedly, drugs on him while attempting to run someone over with a car. Sound work. Allegedly.
From Bill McCleery at the Star:
Trouble began, police said, after Bird and the ex-girlfriend got into a dispute Sunday at Bird’s Bloomington apartment. Bird threw a cell phone at the female, police said.
Later, police said, Bird waited at his ex-girlfriend’s home and took her to a parking lot to talk things over. There, however, they got into another fight, police said, and the girl got out of Bird’s car with the intent of walking back to her home. That’s when, police said, Bird twice tried to hit the woman with his car. Another IU student witnessed the incident, police said, and took the female to the Indiana University Police Department.
According to TMZ, Connor Bird was also arrested in 2011 for “underaged drinking and disorderly conduct.”
I feel badly for the Celtics. They weren't winning a title this year but the injuries, and the closeness of Pierce and Garnett will completely stop Ainge from doing anything. If Garnett goes, they won't win another game. If Pierce goes Garnett will ask to be traded.They cant really trade anyone else because of a completely stripped down bench. Still think they might trade Terry for luxury tax reasons, but I hope not for the sake of competition. Ainge or someone on the Celts must not be living right lol.
Btw Amazing but agonizing win. You have to have a lot of guts and will to hold anyone to 69 points-even the offensively challenged Bulls.
